Dozens were injured and at least five people were killed in shootings over the weekend.
When an 18-year-old was shot after an eyewitness said two men emerged from an alley, a passerby, a 59-year-old man was caught in the crossfire, and the plague of the city of armed violence actually fell on Jamin on the front steps of the parishioners.
Parish said that after the man was shot, he collapsed in front of his home.
Blood stains on the grassy area where the man, identified by police as Tevon Roberson, fell when he was shot at 7100 South Artesian Street in the Market Park neighborhood, according to the police, who said the shooting took place around 9:40 p.m.
It happened because several children were outside, and a 13-year-old, who chose not to be identified to protect him, says he helped provide assistance to the older man who fell.
The teenager said, “Being a child and seeing someone die or die … I can’t even explain the harm.” “I scarred because I wanted to grow up in a situation where I don’t have to see anything like that.”
Barrish said his daughter was having trouble with what she saw.
My daughter, expressed her thoughts with tears, “I would have been hit.” No words.
The nearly thirty shootings have since been non-fatal, and at least five others have been killed as of Sunday night.
It added to the toll of the violence that has claimed more lives in Chicago this year compared to the same point last year.
Father Michael Pfleger said, “As long as we continue our Tale of Two Cities in Chicago, and deserted and neglected on the South and West side, I don’t think the violence will go anywhere.” Saint Sabina Church.
But the numbers and totals, for a child’s witness, mean little when compared to moments.
He was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got caught. “It could have been us,” the teenager said.
